I went to the movie with my partner. The one who had not read the book understood it just as easily as did the one who had read the book. Both of us found the message hammered home a little too obviously, most notably in Somni's pronouncements.
The roll-out of the movie was half-baked - well, quarter-baked. Little advertising, few trailers, and it showed at fewer screens than any movie I can recall with a similar budget and three successful directors (and based on an audacious novel, and stuffed full of delicious visuals). I wonder why the studios did everything but stab the movie in the back?
One thing I can't figure out -- what's the connection between 1973 and 2012? All of the episodes have a direct, historical connection except (as far as I can tell) this one.
